In the personal memoir How I Survived Three Years at a Two-Year Community College, one man shares his compelling three year journey into self-realization, adulthood, and the rigors of junior college as a series of highly improbable events propels him toward a greater destiny.

Two years after high school graduation, James Swift was living with his parents, enjoying the health benefits of pineapple pizza while working a menial job that created fiscal freedom great enough to purchase a cavalcade of video games and compact discs. But something was lacking in Swift's existence-perhaps a predestined obligation-and he desperately pined for an exit from his lower-class purgatory. Through a series of events, he soon finds himself engrossed in the daily grind of junior college as a newly-enrolled communications major and, with a whimsical and honest style, Swift reveals how he eventually achieved philosophical, spiritual and socioeconomic independence all while bidding farewell to his fleeting youth.

How I Survived Three Years at a Two-Year Community College is a coming-of-age tale of endurance and self-reflection that will enlighten anyone searching for answers in an uncertain world.
